I try to make work that is emotionally and sometimes spiritually useful. I create sonic and visual environments for transformative experiences. I often use flameworked glass in an interdisciplinary practice incorporating film, sound, performance, fire, music, and electronics, to address emotional, spiritual, and physical states and thresholds. I build environments and situations to which people privately bring their deepest selves to visually public installations. I'm a people person and love working collaboratively, either with other artists of whatever genre, or the public. Much of my work is interactive.
Leading workshops and teaching are some of the greatest joys of my life and I have led workshops on conceptual art, spirit, peace, forgiveness, and musical instrument making with young school groups, veterans, the elderly with dementia, asylum seekers, faith leaders, MCs, fellow artists, and the public. I teach flameworking internationally in universities and centres of glass excellence.
A lot of my work is large in scale so I sometimes sell components of monumental works so more people (other than the institutions that can normally present my work) can enjoy it.
I'm always reachable by email if you would like more information about anything, are interested in commissioning new work or projects, hosting or being part of workshops, teaching, or purchasing work.
